Man City striker Gabriel Jesus suffers injury against Crystal Palace and leaves pitch in tears

 Gabriel Jesus leaves the pitch in tears after suffering an injury against Crystal Palace

-The distraught Brazil hotshot, 20, was consoled by Pep Guardiola as Sergio Aguero replaced him in the 23rd minute at Selhurst Park.

-Just minutes earlier, Palace captain Scott Dann was carried off on a stretcher after injuring himself fouling Kevin De Bruyne.

-Jesus' first season at City was marred by injury after he broke his metatarsal in February.
 Gabriel Jesus is clearly distraught after being taken off against Crystal Palace

He missed two-and-a-half months with the crock and needed crutches to help him recover.
Jesus has played second fiddle to Aguero this season but still scored 12 goals in all competitions.

The injury comes as a huge blow to boss Guardiola, who is on course for an unprecedented Quadruple.

And the Samba star's World Cup dream could be in tatters should his crock be anything similar to his fractured metatarsal.

The Spaniard now has ONLY Aguero as an out-and-out striker after letting Kelechi Iheanacho leave in the summer.

David Silva and Ilkay Gundogan have both been tested in the False Nine position this term but Guardiola is yet to start a match in that way.
 Gabriel Jesus will be praying he has not injured his metatarsal again

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is hotly tipped to move to the Etihad with his contract expiring in the summer.

Guardiola will likely be forced to splash the cash in the January transfer window.
